Meet Egypt’s New Islamist First Lady Najla Mahmoud – She’s the President’s First Cousin

First Lady Najla Mahmoud speaks with reporters. (Emirates 24/7)

Egypt’s new First Lady Najla Mahmoud is the first Egyptian First Lady to wear the abaya. She’s also his first cousin.
New America Media reported, via Free Republic:

The world now knows that Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party became the first civilian elected president in Egypt’s long history on June 24. But this isn’t the only “first” that Morsi has brought to the Egyptian political landscape.

Morsi is the first Islamist to get to the presidential palace. He is the first Egyptian president with Mohammed as an actual first name—although Hosni Mubarak and Anwar Sadat injected “Mohammed” into their names for Islamic flavor.

Also, he is the first Egyptian president to hold a PhD degree, which he earned in engineering at the University of Southern California (USC). And he is the first president to win a competitive election, where Egyptians had–for the first time–the opportunity to choose from more than one candidate.

An additional “first” that has garnered attention from the West — especially among Americans — is that Morsi’s wife, as the First Lady, is also the first to wear an abaya, the traditional Islamic dress and full coverage hijab.

Her name is Najla Mahmoud. Born in Cairo in 1962, she is Mohammad Morsi’s first cousin… and married Morsi in 1979. The couple has four sons and a daughter.

Egypt’s new First Lady lived in the United States with her husband while he studied at USC. She has been an active member of the Brotherhood for many years running multiple charity projects, particularly in the field of education, and she worked as a translator at the same time.

33 percent of marriages in Egypt are blood related.

    Yes Lizzy, may God please have mercy on those exposed and subject to Islam.

    I want to know where NOW (National Organization of Woman) has gone over the last three years or so. Where do they stand on honor killings, where do they stand on women no longer being able to drive, where do they stand on young women students being poisened by radical Islamists, where do they stand on women no longer being able to handle banannas or cucumbers (I kid you not) as they might be seen as sexual???

    I hear you. Hypocrisy is not a concept that applies to left-sided hack groups like NOW and progressives.
    They have no shame.

    Allegedly, yes–the vatican created both roman catholicism (the Universal religion) and islam as a violent attempt to destroy the jooos and eliminate Israel.

    Inbreeding. No wonder these people are nuts. Genetic mutations?

    First Lady — First Cousin. Tomato — Tomahto.

    Muslim society is tribal. Muslim tribes are made up of several clans. Clans are composed of several blood related families. Inter family marriage between first cousins keeps political and economic power within the clans. All of the above are reasons why western civilization is deluded for wishing that they can promote democracy within this system.

    Muslims are incapable of inventing anything. Innovation within these societies is impossible which is why the hijab was copied from the Catholic Nun’s religious attire. And the Dome of the Rock is actually the remnant of an ancient Byzantine Church that was refurbished by the British government with money accrued from taxing the Palestine Jewish Yishuv.

    Egyptians have low-IQs, are imbred and are fundamentalist muslimes. That’s simply too much fail for any country to handle. But I’m sure the evaaaaal West will be blamed for all of their problems.

    And most lulzy of all, the Left just loves to bash “Rednecks” in America (nice anti-White racial slur) for supposedly being imbred. Yet it’s their new precious muslime pets who actually have the highest rates of incest in the world. Something tells me the Left won’t be easing up on the “Redneck” bashing though and refocusing their ire towards the islamic world…

    I believe #8 may have been referring to the FACT that the pyramids were built on the backs of hundreds of thousands of ENSLAVED Israelites at the hand(s) of the Egyptians, Africans who were among the most prolific and brutal slave owners/masters in the history of the human race.

    Egypt’s cousin-marriage rate may not be as high as it is in Pakistan, but I believe Egypt is close to #1 when it comes to “female circumcision.” More than 90% of Egyptian women undergo FGM. Mahmoud’s wife is the perfect role model for the muslima.

    [As WND was first to report, Abedin once reportedly represented the Muslim World League, or MWL, a Saudi-financed charity that has spawned Islamic groups accused of terror ties. One of the groups was declared by the U.S. government to be an official al-Qaida front.


    The MWL has been accused of terror ties, as have its various offshoots, including the International Islamic Relief Organization, or IIRO, and Al Haramain, which was declared by the U.S. and U.N. a terror financing front.

    Indeed, the Treasury Department, in a September 2004 press release, alleged Al Haramain had “direct links” with Osama bin Laden. The group is now banned worldwide by United Nations Security Council Committee 1267.

    There long have been reports citing accusations the IIRO and MWL also repeatedly funded al-Qaida.


    In August, 2006, the Treasury Department also designated the Philippine and Indonesian branch offices of the MWL-founded IIRO as terrorist entities “for facilitating fundraising for al Qaida and affiliated terrorist groups.”

    The Treasury Department added: “Abd Al Hamid Sulaiman Al-Mujil, a high-ranking IIRO official [Executive Director of its Eastern Province Branch] in Saudi Arabia, has used his position to bankroll the al Qaida network in Southeast Asia. Al-Mujil has a long record of supporting Islamic militant groups, and he has maintained a cell of regular financial donors in the Middle East who support extremist causes.”


    Despite its offshoots being implicated in terror financing, the U.S. government never designated the MWL itself as a terror-financing charity. Many have speculated the U.S. has been trying to not embarrass the Saudi government.]
